Kodak launches budget-friendly Android TV projector

The Kodak brand is a familiar name, best known for its instant cameras and rolls of film, but more astute readers might remember that it actually exited the camera-making business in 2012. However, the brand name has lived on, appearing emblazoned on gadgets ranging from Android smartphones and GoPro-like action cams, and now even portable projectors.


The Flik HD10 Smart Projector proudly carries the Kodak name, though it’s not built by the same Eastman Kodak Company that your parents remember so fondly. Rather, it’s made by C+ Global, a North American brand licensee that also makes Kodak printers, scanners and yet, even cameras in its Kodak Photo Plus portfolio of products.

Now it’s extending into the world of portable Android TV projectors. The Flik HD10 Smart Projector boasts a native resolution of 1080p and is capable of generating a huge, 150-inch image with an aspect ratio of 16:9 or 4:3. It offers manual focus, 2,000:1 contrast and auto keystone and four-corner correction, while its LED light source generates up to 200 ANSI lumens of brightness, making it more suitable for darkened rooms. C+Global reckons it is good for more than 50,000 hours of viewing.

On the connectivity side, we don’t have so many ports with just single HDMI and USB slots available. Most likely, users will want to stream content over Wi-Fi, with the projector supporting various streaming apps like Netflix and YouTube. Chromecast and Apple AirPlay are also supported for mirroring content from a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity is another option, and the boxy unit packs a pair of 5-watt speakers for audio output.

All in all, the Kodak Flik HD10 Smart Projector is a pretty cheap and cheerful sounding unit, but it should still be good enough for those who need a way to watch big-screen content on the go. It’s an affordable investment too, with a price tag of just $269.99 in the U.S., where it’s on sale now.
